I AM CHRISTOPHER LEACH THE ARTIST. I started this blog so that I can share with everyone my vast collection of transport photographs showing a personal and nostalgic view of the industry with images that span some 45 years taking in the U.K and some of Europe. I have no darkroom and so rather than being the perfectionist after tidying them up I upload the images warts and all, and even those that won't scan squarely or are scratched. In a way it adds age and character. You are all free to download these for your personal use but please remember I still own them and you are not just free to use them without prior permission for any knd of publishing. Click on images to enlarge them and if you want to see more leave your comments or visit my website for the mother-site with galleries including those Buses & Girls: PICTUREWORLD

1980's Busy London Victoria
If you're looking for bus and coach variety in London you can't beat Victoria which can not just boast some good and interesting vantage points it is served my many bus routes and attracts coaches including of course those many National Express Services heading for the busy Victoria Coach Station. M47, one of London's first Metrobuses is about to be overtaken by a Yorkshire Traction Neoplan carrying Plaxton bodywork. YTC was notable for giving it's coaches cherished registrations but at least they tried to make the numbers match like No.95, C95 KET which became 4195 HE.
